The deceased was born in Crawford county December 26, 1846, where he spent his boyhood days and in 1863 he entered college at Hayesville, attending for two years. His first business venture was at Crestline where he remained in the harness line for several years, from there he went to Leipsic and engaged in the bakery business until 1880 when he settled in McComb remaining in the same business until 1888 at which time he entered the furniture business, conducting a successful business until his retirement last spring.

In December 1876 he was united in marriage to Miss Hattie Apger of Leipsic. To this union was born one daughter, Miss Ethel, who besides his wife survives. Early in his youth he united with the Presbyterian church and remained a faithful member until the last. While at Leipsic he served as choir leader and also in the same capacity for number of years at this place.
